Sunstar: NEO renews Cleanergy pact with AboitizPower
Posted on July 26, 2021
THE Philippines’ leading sustainable real estate developer, NEO, continues to partner with AboitizPower for the supply of clean and renewable energy to its seven certified green office buildings in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig through the recent formalization of their Cleanergy partnership.
“Given our current climate crisis, sourcing and utilizing only renewable energy is more critical than ever. Net zero energy and reducing the carbon footprint of our buildings is one of our key sustainability commitments in addressing climate change and AboitizPower has been a key partner in our current success,” NEO President and CEO Raymond Rufino said.
Rufino also highlighted how AboitizPower has supported NEO in achieving net zero certifications for its buildings.
“With the NEO portfolio powered by AboitizPower's Cleanergy since 2013, three of our buildings, One/NEO, Four/NEO and Six/NEO have been certified net zero by the Advancing Net Zero Rating Scheme of the Philippine Green Building Council, with the remaining four buildings in our portfolio in line for certification within the year. We look forward to our continued partnership with AboitizPower as we work collectively in advocating for net zero across the Philippine real estate industry,” Rufino added.
NEO is the first property owner and developer to have completed its entire portfolio with 5-star certifications under the Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (Berde) program, the nationally recognized green building rating system. In the past year, NEO also achieved 5-star certifications for net zero carbon energy in three of its buildings under the Philippine Green Building Council’s Advancing Net Zero Rating Scheme (ANZ/PH) pilot program, which verifies a development’s net zero carbon energy emissions.
